Sponsor A Cat
Sponsoring is a great way help out a PAL cat!

Cats accepted into the PAL adoption program are provided with all their necessary veterinary care and reside at the shelter or in foster homes until they find their forever homes. While many cats, especially kittens, are placed within a couple of weeks, some of our guests are older or shy and may stay for months or even years awaiting their permanent homes. Sponsoring a cat will help PAL continue to provide food, toys, beds, and medical care until each cat is adopted by a loving family.

You are welcome to sponsor any of the cats at PAL. Too hard to choose? PAL has created a Sponsor Me button for the long term or harder to place cats. Check the Cats for Adoption page to see which cats PAL has designated for this special sponsorship.

Friends of Ferals

Feral with tipped ear We wish that all cats could live with a loving family. We wish that all cats could be warm, well fed and spend long days basking in a sunny window. However, it is not meant to be...

The longer we are involved with cat rescue, the more aware we have become of the need to help feral cats. These cats have been raised without human contact and most of them will never become pets or companions. In recent years, there is growing support by most animal welfare organizations to help these cats through TNR Programs (trap, neuter and release). This is quite a change from the past where the solution to the feral cat problem was to trap and euthanize.

PAL attempts to make caring, intelligent decisions regarding feral cats. We evaluate each situation. If there is shelter – and the cats are being fed – we trap, neuter and release. However in some situations, the decision to euthanize is made ending a life of suffering and misery.

PAL is establishing a special "Friends of Ferals" to help the many feral cats in our local communities. If you would like your donation to be used for this purpose, we will honor your request.

Please send your check payable to People for Animals League with "Friends of Ferals" in the memo line and mail to:

Thanks very much for your generous support!

Here's a very comical song called Feral Song about feral cats and why we love them, written and sung by Karen Green. If you rescue, participate in TNR, or manage a feral cat or colony, this song is a must hear!
